[IN STOCK] DIY 1U Tile Case Kit

https://i.imgur.com/P2rNny9l.jpg The 1U Tile case has been redesigned to be (easily) DIYable. Kits are available with all hardware, and the power backplane PCB can be had as just the PCB; with all components; or completely built so no soldering is required in assembling the case. The case is assemb...

Syinsi 1U Tile PCB/Panel kits

The 1U Tile PCB/Panel kits are back . We were working on having pre-built and tested PCBs instead of just bare PCBs, but that was taking too long so the bare PCB/Panel kits are back and we'll add the pre-built PCBs as they get done. The issue was with building automated testing jigs that can accurat...

I hate to wade into this argument but as a designer I have to say that the biggest reason 1U Tiles are the size they are is because when you're talking about something that small space is very, very precious. Anything under the rails is wasted space as far as controls go, so fitting as much as possi...

Ahhh. I saw "Eagle" and automatically thought "ULP". Now that I understand what you're doing: Interesting... I've been playing with Eagles XML file format , but only for component/inventory management. I'll have to look into your libraries further -- very intriguing. The code only looks clean becaus...

Where are these LED buttons?

These LED buttons started appearing on more and more modules (the green and turquoise buttons on the bottom of the picture for example): https://i.imgur.com/vNOjUp1m.jpg They're about 10mm in diameter, and RGB. Both the Intellijel and Make Noise use the exact same part as far as I can tell (or at le...

Here's the Eagle ULP I wrote a couple years ago. Use what you need if there's anything useful in there. It just does the outline, and I never made a PCB panel with it, but exported the result as DXF to get panels laser cut. Eagle, for all its faults, exports rock-solid DXFs (and Gerbers). In the par...

I have a box of Kimwipes. Will that work, or do I need to buy some rubbing alcohol too? Use both together. Put a Kimwipe over the PCB and then put IPA on the Kimwipe and rub it around with a stiff brush. IPA will dissolve the flux, but it needs to get absorbed into something or else it'll just get ...

These 90-degree cables were also considered, but in a crowded patch they quickly get in the way.

(They're great for overhead filming though. These are Erthenvar again -- anyone else selling them or similar? I wouldn't mind getting more for videos.)

https://i.imgur.com/vVK8vtJl.jpg What are your thoughts on these patch cables? The green ones are Erthenvar (RIP) which I really like because they have a nice rubbery feel, but can't find them anywhere. The pinkish purple one is a "skinny" patch cables from Modular Addict. It has the same rubbery f...

Yeah, it's a pain. I make it a point to always say "1U Tile", which is what Pulp Logic calls them. One of the first versions of the case was 4x4 (16 modules) instead of the current 3x4 (12 modules), but it felt too big and looked funny. I also did 4x2 (8 modules) but it was too small -- I use it now...

All the music in the above video is made with 1U Tiles, and it was composed in a video editor rather than a DAW. https://i.imgur.com/RlVp1hxl.png Audio was recorded directly to the video camera above the table. The keyboard (Arturia KeyStep) was sending a 140bpm clock as well as CV to the EuroTile m...

Yes the top is laser-cut aluminum and is held in place by the four (black) bolts on the left and right sides. In theory Intellijel modules should fit, but it may throw the spacing off for that row. I don't have any so can't say for sure. There are already a couple 10-pin Eurorack power headers for t...

This is really interesting and cool. Probably discussed in various 1U threads, but would it possible to mount a single 3U 6HP module vertically if the holes lined up? Love the new modules shown here too. Thanks! I don't think it would work (as I think I understand the question) because the horizont...

For pricing I'm thinking about:

Just case + power adapter: $99USD

Monosynth: $499USD

Utilities: $499USD

Because of the way Kickstarter works the actual prices will be in Canadian dollars so the USD equivalent may be off by a few dollars depending on the exchange rate.

These may change.

EuroTile 1U Tile Skiff Case

Hey, I'm doing a Kickstarter for the 1U Tile skiff case I've been schlepping around at Knobcon, TSF and elsewhere. https://i.imgur.com/RsiVD3zl.jpg For the Kickstarter there will also be a couple turn-key configurations complete with patch cables. https://i.imgur.com/OphMnyJl.png https://i.imgur.com...
